Imagine having a wild past, only to be confronted years later by a teenager claiming to be your child. This man, now almost 40, had a tumultuous youth filled with partying and hookups. He's since turned his life around, but his past came back to haunt him when a 16-year-old boy reached out, believing the man was his father. What followed was a rollercoaster of emotions and a paternity test that would change everything.
